 So long, so long, so long, he's been away
So long, so long, so long, he's back again

     Cadd9         G            Cadd9           G
When I turned seventeen, we had passion, we had dreams
            Em                    D
Thought the love we were fighting for
              Cadd9           G
was something holy, something more
     Cadd9           G            Cadd9          G
When I turned twenty-one, we were outside on the run
       Em                 D
When I walked out with my girl
             Cadd9              G
Hey, we went halfway around the world, 'round the world

      Em D         Cadd9            G
And I, I dreamed I saw her standing there
        Em               D              Cadd9
They're running for the boy inside the man
     Em   D            Cadd9              G
I was hit hard by the light so bright it burned
    Em            D               Cadd9
And all at once I knew she'd understand, understand, understand
                    G                       Cadd9   G
The boy inside the man, the boy inside the man

     Cadd9           G             Cadd9          G
When I turned twenty-five, we were hungry, we had drive
       Em                D
Then I turned much older then
              Cadd9           G
Ah, cause the boy was lost in pride
      Cadd9              G              Cadd9           G
Now I just turned thirty-one and I have lost and I have won
           Em              D
Still I've kept my dreams alive
              Cadd9          G
Ah, cause the boy will never die, never die

      Em D         Cadd9            G
And I, I dreamed I saw her standing there
        Em               D              Cadd9
They're running for the boy inside the man
     Em   D            Cadd9              G
I was hit hard by the light so bright it burned
    Em            D               Cadd9
And all at once I knew she'd understand, understand, understand
                    G                       Cadd9   G
The boy inside the man, the boy inside the man        Ah, do you understand?

                    G
The boy inside the man
                    Cadd9   G
The boy inside the man
                    Cadd9   G
The boy inside the man
                    Cadd9   G
The boy inside the man
Cadd9     G
 So long, so long, so long, he's been away
Cadd9     G
 So long, so long, so long, he's back again
Cadd9     G
 So long, so long, so long, he's been away
Cadd9     G
 So long, so long, so long, he's back again
